Life in the middle lane small town life
I have been living in a big city most of my life. So moving to a small town would mean a big change.
Well......l maybe not so big.
Living in a city like Sacramento was a growing fast pace city, but much slower than my previous city of San Francisco. After moving to Sacramento, I even use to say things like "it sure is slow here in Sacramento, funny now that I think about it.
It was much more spread out than San Francisco. With a few plots rural-like area. Which at the time to me meant if you had chickens or horses that was rural? LOL.
Of course, after living here for several years I realized that it was not rural, but more like Agriculture. I thought it was a great mixed so close together. But you still had to deal with traffic, large crowds, and ever-growing feeling of things moving faster and faster. Lots of growth taking place here.
Don’t get me wrong I like living in Sacramento, but long to have my own little green gables. Yes, the same from the book/movie Anne of Green Gables. Lots of trees near water!
Moving to clear lake is where I found that happy medium.
I’m not in the city, but yet not totally rural. The town is not slow as a matter of fact I see a great deal of growth if you know where to look. With a lot of wineries here and the allure of natural surroundings, this town provides any visitors with a wealth of great things to explore.
A jewel in the rough.
As I was driving into town one of my kids says “hey mom, there are no traffic lights here” LOL Well I said we have them but not that many. Funny!
The people who live here tend to go just a little slower, which leaves time to wave say hi, let you go first at the stop sign. And smile a lot more.
I would have to say I like the middle lane of life in this town versus the fast lane living city life!
If you are looking to move to a small town or live in one now leave me a comment, I would love to hear from you.
Remember dont just live rural....... Rule your Rural Life!
